    Actually Jamespublius you clearly don’t know what innocent until proven guilty means. You misunderstand in the way people misunderstand free speech. Those are legal protections. Those protections don’t preclude me from placing judgments and probabilities of guilt on someone based on what is already known.

    OJ Simpson and Casey Anthony had their day in court. Just because they weren’t convicted doesn’t make them innocent. It is overwhelmingly likely that both are guilty and should be treated as such.

    Except none of these women are asking for money. One went to a prosecutor in 2004 and the prosecutor basically said he believed her but rape is a hard conviction. Janice Dickinson has alluded to being raped in interviews about Cosby in 2006. Cosby settled with another woman to drop charges. Cosby has not really given a denial of any of these accusations.

    At the very least, what do you say about a guy who “mentors” teenage women in his hotel room?

    Progressive utopia?
    Nobody is saying he should go to jail without a trial. Given the accusations from 16 women with similar stories, his lawsuit settlement, and his responses now and in the past, it is overwhelmingly likely that he is guilty. That might not be enough to convict in our justice system, which protects the rights of the accused. It is more that enough for him to be shunned, spit on, and treated like the deviant that he is.

    I’m guessing you are being sarcastic. But just in case. Mises was the most the hardcore defender of capitalism of any major academic economist in the 20th century. There was a famous story about him walking out of room with people like Milton Friedman calling them a bunch of socialists for supporting progressive tax rates. The book Socialism was the first major work to point out why pure socialism can’t possibly work under any circumstance because you don’t have a price system coordinating production.

    And big government types like yourself cause 90% of the country’s ills.

    Sanford is one of the top 5 most fiscally conservative people in Congress. He wasn’t a lesser of evils pick or just a good pick. He is outstanding.

    He was a great Governor and a great House Rep. He should have won this race by 20, but airheads, like the author of this column, perpetuate the idea that there is some mythical figure that was better out there.

    Santorum was a fiscally liberal Senator. People like him are what gave us Obama. You can blame the era of big deficits on people like Santorum. He deserves any abuse he gets for the weakened position the country is now in.

    Santorum’s views certainly don’t line up the party, at least not the conservative wing. I’m glad that Santorum is criticizing Rand Paul’s economic views and Paul’s views for the role of government. Santorum supported large steel tariffs, Sarbanes-Oxley, No Child Left Behind, the online poker ban, unchecked spending, and Medicare Part D. He also said we had budget surpluses so he thought Congress should spend that money. LOL.

    Santorum is a big government Socialist. At least he didn’t cop out and just criticize Paul on foreign policy. He made sure to let everyone know that he hates the individual. He hates economic freedom. Santorum is a disgusting collectivist.

    The only left leaner is you and you are too dumb to realize it.

    It’s disappointing how many people who call themselves conservatives don’t understand the economics behind immigration. So many people have such a fixed pie left wing mindset. They forget that country is much richer now with 300 million people than when there were 20 million here. If you restrict welfare benefits and voting rights, all immigration is beneficial.

    First of all, he isn’t Soros’ buddy any more than Jim Rogers or Victor Niederhoffer are his buddies. Secondly, Druckenmiller is one of really good guys out there. Not too mention, he isn’t a hack like 99.9% of people commenting on financial issues.
